Déjà vu of a different kind (and a failed Turing test)
Set during software upgrading, trouble-shooting of some sort. Present are the Expert and I.
"Should we try function X?" the Expert asks. - "No, function X is only for model A. We have model B." - "Oh, ok...." with a empty look in his face.
Seventeen minutes and an error message later:
"Should we try function X?" the Expert asks. - "No!? This won't work because it's only for model A." - "Oh"
Twenty-five minutes and two error messages later:
"Maybe we should try to run function X?" - "Erm???? Yes, give it a go!" - .... "Ah no, this is only for model A!" the Expert says with an eureka smile in its face. "Thank god! Finally!!!" I think.
Not so fast, smart-arse, not so fast... An hour or so later, it clicks again on function X to see what happens.
